2011-12-31 Sun and Moon

These were two independent observations.  First up was the sun:

It was taken with a reducer.

Next up was the moon, the first one was a mosaic of two frames, actually, the 1/3" CCD was just a little bit smaller than the image.

And in order to try out the tracking performance of my Mark-X, I inserted my 5x Powermate and it works out fine:

So, the Mark-X really creates a lot of opportunity for different observation, the high loading plus the excellent portability left nothing to be desired.
